Cornelius Rothbury and the AlbuquerquEP

Dear Cactus Tractor Fans (and Future Fans!) We are in the thick of our Kickstarter campaign to make our second album (Lydian Water Songs Pt., II) and we want you to be a part of it!

If you join the campaign before April 15th (easy, just turn us in with your taxes!) we will send the downloadable AlbuquerquEP to you!  The AlbuquerquEP consists of three original Cactus Tractor songs written by Stef, David and Christy respectively, all about Albuquerque.   To help us spread the word about the Kickstarter and this fantastic thank you gift we’ve hired Cornelius Rothbury (world famous Independently Wealthy Motivational Speaker and Lounge Singer) to speak on our behalf.  Take it away Cornelius!


If you would like to meet Cornelius in person (or anyone in Cactus Tractor for that matter), join us for BRUNCH at the Boiler Monkey cafe and eatery (located at the corner of 8th at Mountain in Albuquerque) on April 19th from 9:30am-12:30pm.

If Cactus Tractor had to claim to be good at only one thing, that thing would have to be brunch music.  Historians will probably determine that Cactus Tractor got its chops serenading late breakfasters on the corner of 8th and Mountain (which we did for many many man-months, every Saturday, during our first years as a band).

We also have a history of playing at Wafflucks (waffle potlucks) which, by their very nature, epitomize brunch (as determined by historians).

Finally, Cactus Tractor also washes cars with champagne (Join our Kickstarter and get a CT Car Wash as a prize!)… washing cars and champagne (with orange juice) are both Saturday-morningy in nature, and by association we would say that they are also breakfasty, or brunchy.
